Competitive Landscape

Based on end-users, the global OTC Drugs market is segmented into retail pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, online pharmacies, among others. The online sales segment of over-the-counter drugs is changing the market, menacing major OTC drug manufacturers and permitting minor companies to get their share in the market. Bayer’s Aleve is one of the best-selling drugs in America, with a revenue of around $YY million in case of sales in 2016. But there was a drop in sales by 10% in 2017. This was attributable to the availability of alternative drugs online from small manufacturers. This shows that power is gradually shifting toward e-commerce, making it difficult for the major players.
